What else to consider from Rogue

Overview of the Rogue Pro Rope 

 
The Rogue Pro Jump Rope is the best you can get from Rogue. It combines the benefits of a heavy jump rope with the speed of a speed jump rope. This is also reflected in the price. The specifications for this jump rope are: 
 
  • Made in the USA
  • Weighted Jump Rope as Seen in 2016 CrossFit Games
  • Cable: 5.5mm, heavyweight, red-coated
  • Handles: Stainless Steel, 25MM diameter
  • Weight: 1LB (per handle)
  • Total Weight: 110" rope is 2.5LB - Each 5" increment increases/decreases total weight by approximately 0.025LB
  • Knurled Grip
  • Etched Rogue branding
  • Bearing system with swivel design
  • Recommend the 5.5MM Replacement Cable Kit
 
 

Pros of the Rogue Pro 

 
This is what has been used in the games in 2016. If you want to get stronger and faster at the same time, this is the rope to get. It might be the fastest, but it is definitely the fastest heavy rope you can get your hands on. 
 

Cons of the Rogue Pro 

 
Price. 
 

Alternatives to the Rogue Pro

 
Alternatives to the Rogue Pro are: 
 
 
The SR3 jump rope is the bread and butter model in the CrossFit community. If you are annoyed with the jump rope from the local shop and want to start with double unders, this is the one for you. It is part of many of the Rogue equipment packages and can also be bought in bulk to outfit an affiliate or college gym. 
 
The SR1 jump rope is an alternative to get a bearing jump rope on the cheap. The SR1 also has bearing to make the rope run smoothly but the handles are not made of Aluminium. This makes them lighter and more cost-efficient at the expense of being easier to break. 
 
 

Summary for Rogue Pro 

 
If you have the money to spend and don’t have weightlifting shoes yet, this is the one to go for. If you want a fast heavy rope, have fun with this.
